How to share Live Location with Friends and Family on Snapchat?

Snapchat recently came out with an update called “Share My Live Location” for its users.┬áIt has added a new function that allows you to share your current location with trusted friends and family members for a limited time. For 15 minutes, 1 hour, or 8 hours, you can allow ‘temporary live location sharing.’

Steps to use the ‘Share My Live Location’ feature:

It’s simple to share your present location with your Snapchat friends. To enable the new update on your app, follow this step-by-step guide.

  1. Launch the Snapchat application.
  2. Open the profile of the person with whom you want to share your current location.

  4. When you select the option, a pop-up window will appear, informing you of the new Live Location feature.

You will not be able to share your live whereabouts with more than one person at a time because the feature only works between friends and on an individual basis.

When you share your live location with a friend, they’ll notice a special symbol next to your Bitmoji that says ‘Live.’ This icon will only be displayed to your friend and not to the rest of the app’s users. While in Ghost Mode, you can share your Live Location and choose to cease sharing at any time without generating a notification.

Steps to Stop Sharing your Location on Snapchat

If you want to stop sharing your location, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the friend’s profile with whom you are presently sharing your location.
  2. Under the ‘Snap Map’ area, tap ‘Stop.’

This feature of sharing the live location with your friends and family is quite similar to the one on WhatsApp. The location on WhatsApp can be shared with your contacts. Similarly, on Snapchat, location can be shared with the friends you have added.
